  • Gav & Dan are at a tank range using the latest and greatest in projectile tracking technology. Combined with the Phantom cameras, they get some absolutely surreal looking footage.

    Three things:
    1) Thank you (very sincerely) for making this video.
    2) I very seriously hope you guys had sufficient downrange safety. Those weapons are orders-of-magnitude more dangerous than small arms.
    3) Wow.. Not sure what condition those weapons are in, or who custom made the cartridges, but if the guns and projectiles are both up to spec, then it says alot about the state of the tech then vs now.

    The reason why it felt so powerful to Dan is that it has a muzzle break, which would divert much of the wind sideways and into Dan

    Sherman at the start is a M4A3 76mm HVSS without the muzzle break.
    Then there is a second Sherman 76 HVSS (Not sure if it's an A2 or A3 because i could not see the engine deck) WITH the muzzle break. Although i'm sure Bovington tank museum wants a word because i'm faily sure Fury's gun also works. (Edit sorry i did not read fast enough it is an A2 which means diesel)
    Thank you for getting the gun caliber right, most people say it is '75mm low velocity' no matter what!
    So yeah, this is good! Sherman lover approves! AND THAT IS *RARE!!!*

    Imagine you got the perfect shot on a panther you thought was a tiger 2 concealed position youll be a hero but its a windy day and your solid shot is pitching too much to penetrate the hulldown panther lol your thinking game over right? No the 75mm and 105mm shermans firing H.E. blew the barrels off them and killed hitler youth hans who bailed at the first sight of freedom fighters that looked like a swarm of ants climbing an ant hill.
    Btw pretty modern truck to be on a range soo sad the driver must’ve totaled it

      They said in a behind the scenes video that they don't do 60p because it doubles the speed of the slow-mo playback. So the slow-mo needs to stay in 30p.

    uh- i just keep needing to edit my comment xD
    YTubers always do m4 shermans, can we step it up a notch with a more devastating tank? :D another common one you could potentially get your hands on is the M41 bulldog
    OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS? as soon as i wrote that ^ theres another 'big gun' behind the m4 literally as i mentioned using something else. sigh, i look stupid writing all that :P

  • Sivan Sharma
    Sivan Sharma 10 days ago +1

    At 10:30 the guys say the second shell is "an order of magnitude larger". But the difference between the two shells is only double (2x), which is obviously not an order of magnitude (10x).

    • Sivan Sharma
      Sivan Sharma 10 days ago

      +Garrison Pendergrass It went from 76mm to 152mm. 76x10 = 760.
      If 76 to 152 is an order of magnitude, then so should be 99 to 100. Surely that would defeat the definition

    First sherman shown was an M4A3E8 fitted with a 76mm M1A1 gun, but the second tank actually used to fire is fitted with the 76 mm M1A2 gun. M4A3 designation is based on the hull model, M4A1, A2, and A3 with the last being the A4, the E8 designation represents the upgraded suspension.
